"This world is transitory, like an autumnal cloud. The birth and death of beings is like watching a dance. The length of a being's life is like a lightening flash, coming swiftly and abruptly to an end, like water dashing over a steep precipice."
from Tibetan folk tales
"What is life? It is a flash of a firefly in the night.
It is the breath of a buffalo in the winter time.
It is the little shadow that runs across the grass
and loses itself in the sunset."

To this day I believe we are here on earth to live, grow,

and do what we can to make this world a better place

for all people to enjoy freedom.

This is the head of my largest Sunflower
eight inches in diameter.
It was a beauty to watch grow.
It's siblings didn't get quite as tall as
this nearly 7 foot wonder.

This was an experiment( in two halves of same painting) on really
a really thick pulp sheet.

These are more potato prints from years ago.

In them you can see the repetition that I love.

"The greater evolution is to see from another man's point of view also. By seeing from his point of view you do not lose your own: your own point of view is still there; but the other point of view is added to yours, therefore, your knowledge becomes greater. It means a greater stretching of the heart and sometimes the heart feels pain when you stretch it. But by stretching the heart and by making it larger and larger, you turn your heart into the sacred Book." Hazrat Inayat Khan
